“I’m excited about being a Truth At Work Chapter President because it provides me the opportunity to combine my passion for serving business leaders as a coach and consultant with my calling to serve and disciple my fellow Christians as they explore discover and express themselves in the most dynamic of mission fields – the workplace.
Our work matters to God and as we deal with the issues, problems and opportunities that confront us in the marketplace isn’t it great to know that there is an organization devoted to helping us balance our personal, professional and spirituals lives where our faith is challenged and tested the most? The 9 to 5 work window is the largest mission field out there and I take my role as a Truth At Work Chapter President and facilitator first as a ministry calling and alternatively as a career choice. Truth At Work was founded and is led by authentic, pragmatic believers who are committed to the cause of transforming the marketplace for Christ. I believe that we are all called in our own way to do the same and it starts with the leadership – it starts with you and I. I am excited and privileged to be a part of it and I look forward to working with those who are led to discover and join in this life and business changing experience!”
